I hear what you are saying, Steve! I've had the same experiences. PSR's "Awaiting Review" resource has become a "go to" link for me nearly every day now. Strelets figures always look better once in hand, but until then PSR's great resources helps me during the wait. Cheers :slightly_smiling_face:
Who knows why blue was chosen, Minuteman? Maybe they're just a test run? But I'm reminded of Orion's Polish Winged Hussars. PSR references they were made in no fewer than 10 colors! I'm not known as a painter, so a good quality, flat color that shows details well is very important to me. But back on point, we may find more colors out there after distribution to sellers. I did buy many of the Winged Hussars different colors just because they all looked good to me. Same with their Chinese Boxers. One way or another, for the most part, I'm always a happy camper. And I'm super grateful for Strelets maintaining consistency in colors.
Alan Buckingham did a super job of painting the British Tankers recently. His style has always been eye pleasing to me. I'm very excited to see the LRDG next. Cheers :slightly_smiling_face:
Maybe someone got a bit confused by the Desert Army slang phrase "swanning about in the blue"?
The challenge is NWE 44/45 two types of Tank crew dress, Summer and winter , so what do you call the guys in Normandy now should a set come along ?
